Leeds is currently being pursued by a few elite teams.

Leeds United, despite their fledgling start to the season, they have to maintain this momentum throughout the remainder of the season.


They are on course to make their first-ever Premier League comeback, but they understand that they could lose some of their best players if they are unable to repeat as champions.


Yes, as we get further into the winter season, we’re beginning to notice reminders of that.

Premier League sides creeping over talent

When a team leaves the Premier League, many other teams face this issue, and Leeds is not an exception.

They lost a few people in the summer, but they were still able to hang on to some important players. They are aware that if they don’t get promoted this year, it will be difficult to hold on to the people who stayed much longer.


It is true that some elite teams are reportedly interested in signing some of their talent. For example, Archie Grey is reportedly being courted by Liverpool, Everton, and Crystal Palace, and Tottenham is reportedly considering a move for Willy Gnonto, a player who appears likely to leave even if Leeds does advance.


It is obvious that these rumours will only intensify as the season progresses, and Leeds’ only option is to continue winning games in order to give themselves the strongest negotiating position in order to retain their players: 24/25 Premier League football.


Leeds is in charge of it

Daniel Farke and Leeds supporters have the advantage that the situation is under their control and appears to have a good chance of turning out.


They might lose some players even if they advanced, of course, but if they won promotion—and they have a good chance of doing so—that would give them the best chance of keeping most of them.


There’s a long way to go in the season, of course, but a win over Leicester earlier this month showed they can beat anyone in the league on their day, and they are currently third – eight points off of Ipswich Town in second place as we head into the latest round of Championship fixtures.


Finishing inside the top six will be the minimum expectation this year, but being one of the three going up needs to really be the aim or they risk seeing a talented squad getting taken apart.
